The Ericholm 250SWB build thread is excellent, and a great source of info... Can someone direct me towards any photos showing how the mini door handles were 'linked' to the existing handle mechanism/locks? I found the text, but couldn't access the photos (despite joining flikr). I looked at the 2,000 plus photos I could access, but it looks like the door lock bit is 'private' only. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Thanks in anticipation

This was with the first version of the Tribute door skin, the later versions don't have the mark on them. You will however be able to work the position out from the photo.
I would make the hole larger as it is easier. Just attach a small metal plate to the bar seen inside the hole. Use a pilot drill and then tec screws. The plunger from the door handle simply presses on the plate to open the door.
A word of warning, make sure the plunger on the Mini door handle does not touch the plate, if it does it will cause the doors to occasionally and without warning deadlock. It the plunger is too far away then the door won't open. You must be very accurate, good luck.

found this.. may help. I used this as a center mark and cut a larger rectangle)

Mini door handle placement
drill a hole 45mm (1-25/32) inches up from the top of the round chrome key hole. I used a 40mm hole saw (1-9/16”) which was perfect, just gave me enough room to bolt a plate to the bar.
Page 5 of my build thread.

I did put a thick bead of silicone sealant in an arc above the newly cut hole, the idea being that water was directed away from the hole. A lot of water can get between the old and new door skins, make sure you drill plenty of drainage hole in the bottom of the new skins.
I saw on the Tribute doorskin an area that had obviously been filled. I just drilled through this at the centre point and on throgh the bmw doorskin. The drill bit actually hit the inner bar and popped open the door. This was obviously down to incredible skill and had nothing to do with luck!
I then used the drill hole in the door with a 40mm holesaw which gave enough room to fit the new striker plate.
